How are we (Saints) going to finish below Sale? Comfortably beat them twice last year, they are pony.

I am guessing they think O'Conner, De Klerk and other signings will improve Sale over saints. Not sure I believe that currently (would love to) but not overly beyond the realms of possibility considering Sale were 6th 2 years ago.

I cant see Irish finishing bottom - I suspect that it will be Worcester this season. Although that will probably all change after watching the 1st round.
Sale have spent the bucks in the past and it hasn't worked out for them! Faf DeKlerk I think will be the one to change things there and boss the games from 9 like a younger Danny Care used to do for Quins.
